Wayne Hussey is taking a break from his day job as leader of the British rock band, The Mission, to go out and play a double fistful of solo shows in late spring 2018.

Taking in shows in places as far flung as Umea in the north of Sweden and Santiago in Chile the tour is entitled ‘Aniversário Tour’. The Portuguese word, aniversário translates as birthday and these shows are a way for Wayne to celebrate his upcoming 60th. In fact the final show of the tour on Saturday 26th May, his birthday, will be in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the city where Wayne has resided for the last 17 years.

Wayne says: “I was talking with Cinthya, my wife, and she was asking me what would I would most like to do for my birthday. Besides the obvious I replied, ‘play a show’. And she suggested I do so. As the band is on a sabbatical it has to be solo. And as rehearsing for one show takes as much time and preparation as it does for a whole tour one thing led to another and here I am. I shall expect lots of presents and happy birthday to be sang to me at all these shows,” Wayne smirks.
He continues, ‘I’m writing my memoirs at the moment and it’s keeping me rooted indoors and to my desk so a chance to get away and make a bit of music for a couple of weeks will be more than welcome, I expect, come May. I’m sure cabin fever will have set in by then.”

Wayne’s autobiography, working title ‘By Name And By Nature’, is expected early next year and will be published by Omnibus Press.
